Summary (From the publisher):

A marriage has been arranged between an ageing nobleman and a very young woman, ill-matched as January and May, but coerced by greedy guardians. Both parties arrive in Shrewsbury, with escorts suitable to their rank. A savage killing calls Brother Cadfael from his herbarium, and leads him to the leper house of Saint Giles - a sanctuary for the sick, but also a possible refuge for the hunted man...
